Structure 114, subterranean kiva
About this Structure
Central portion of the site.
East-central portion of Architectural Block 100; 499.6N 520.3E.
Structure 114 is similar to other kivas occupied during the Pueblo III period and was most likely used in a combination of domestic and ritual activities. The presence of a hearth (Features 1) indicates a domestic use of the structure and would have been used for light, heat, and food preparation. The presence of sherds on the floor surface also indicates a domestic use of the structure.
Structure 114 was intentionally burned at abandonment. The burned wood and sediments collapsed directly on the floor surface.
Natural wind and water sediments accumulated over the burned roof sediments.
